Novavax CEO on $1.6 Billion in Federal Funding for COVID-19 Vaccine Research

This morning, we got the news that Operation Warp Speed is awarding $1.6 billion to Novavax for its COVID-19 vaccine. … This is the largest award that Operation Warp Speed has made yet for a vaccine, with the goal of potentially having 100 million doses available by the end of this year. How confident are you in being able to meet that goal? Well, everybody’s working toward that goal. We’ve started in early January when the gene sequence was first identified for coronavirus and we’ve been using a manufacturing platform that we’ve used on a lot of our vaccines over the past years to scale up, and we think we have the capability of doing that.

    If the fact that vaccine manufacturers were already working on a vaccine for COVID19 in January is not enough to show everyone that we have been lied to and that the goal or goals of this whole pandemic is much more dreadful than anything we could imagine, I do not know what it will take for people to wake up.
    it looks to me that in 100+ years since the 1918 flu pandemic, the only thing we have accomplished is making a large portion of humanity loose their ability to think clearly and critically. May be we should start distributing the best dystopian novels to get people to start thinking again…
